HELP! Need lockout feature with XDM and ScreenLock

Post by Rajiv Koh » Sun, 16 Jan 1994 03:16:07


I urgently need to incorporate this feature so if somebody
has already done it or knows of a ftp site that has the
solution to this problem, please relay it to me.



In a network of SUN's running YP/NIS, xdm and Screenlock/ScreeSaver
we need to add this additional security. When a user attempts
to log in initially OR after a ScreenSaver kicked in, NOT
MORE THAN  3 attempts be allowed. The password should be blocked
and only the system administrator should be able to make changes
so the user can get in.

It will be great/ideal if somebody has a solution with IXI
Screenlock and XDM. HOWEVER, we are willing to dump IXI
screenlock and install/incorporate some other ScreenLock -
xlock, locksc, lockscreen, deadman, etc. We cannot dump XDM

I am pretty tight on time. So if somebody can help me out on
this, pretty quick, I will really appreciate it.

1. Solaris screenlock feature

I've just compiled and installed the latest xscreensaver software
for my Solaris 2.5.1 machines. Here's my problem:
Alot of my users run matlab jobs overnight. The xscreensaver is started
as follows: /usr/bin/X11/xscreensaver -timeout xx -lock &.
The screensaver kicks in with the lock, but if matlab happens to plot
to the screen, it does so over the screensaver. This doesn't happen
when my users "click" the lock icon on the desktop. Did I miss something
in the xscreensaver build? Is there any other type of screensaver
software out there for Solaris?
